How do you loosen the tensioner belt on a 96 Mustang with a 3.8? ::

put a wrench on the bolt in the center of the pulley. pull the wrench up and the belt will loosen.

Tried the wrench. It only seemed to move a fraction of an inch...maybe I'm just too weak Should it be that difficult to move?

I don't remember which way you're supposed to turn it, but I do remember how I did it:

have the handle of the wrench horizontal, and push down on it, using your body weight. Then slip the belt off while it's loose. If this doesn't help I'll go do it to my 98 to re-teach myself, and try to help you further.
